Pop art visionary and one of the best-dressed artists of all time (at least according to us), David Hockney has unveiled a mammoth new book that traces 62 years of the painter's career.

Personally curated by David over the last 15 months, the 500-page, 35 kilogram SUMO, A Bigger Book published by Taschen examines Hockney's progression from Bradford art school, to portrait and landscape mastery and onto his most recent work, crafted solely on an iPad.

Speaking at the Frankfurt Book Fair, David described the book as "an autobiography in pictures, made by a person who loves pictures and makes them."

Fair enough, Dave. 

Coming in at £1,750 and is limited to just 10,000 copies. Hockney fans can preorder the book here, although you're probably going to need a bigger coffee table.
